Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert issued an apology after a video appears to show her vaping and being openly fondled by a man during the musical theater performance of “Beetlejuice.”
Boebert was booted from the “Beetlejuice” musical at the Buell Theatre on Sunday after complaints that she was vaping and causing a disturbance during the performance.
Boebert admitted that she had been kicked out of the show on Tuesday, “It’s true, I did thoroughly enjoy the AMAZING Beetlejuice at the Buell Theatre and I plead guilty to laughing and singing too loud! Everyone should go see it if you get the chance this week and please let me know how it ends!”
On Wednesday, Boebert’s campaign manager, Drew Sexton, denied the accusations that the congresswoman was vaping at the play.
However, alleged video of her questionable behavior began circulating online by the end of the week.
Surveillance video seemingly shows Boebert vaping, blowing clouds of vapor, and using her cell phone during the performance. Boebert’s date appears to aggressively fondle her breasts during the show. Video obtained by 9News seemingly shows Boebert gyrating and dancing in her seat.
During an intermission, an usher is seen on video speaking to Boebert and her date.
After the musical began again, Boebert seems to be taking photos with her cell phone and using the flash on the camera.
In the middle of the second act, an usher is reportedly seen escorting Boebert and her date out of the theater.

Theater officials confirmed to the Colorado Sun that two patrons were “escorted from the theater” on Sunday, but did not identify them.
The Colorado Sun reported, “As they were being escorted from the property, the two people said ‘stuff like ‘do you know who I am,’ ‘I am on the board,’ (and) ‘I will be contacting the mayor,’ according to a security incident report obtained by The Sun from the city through an open records request.”
Boebert issued an apology for her behavior that got her kicked out of the musical in Denver.
Boebert said, “I genuinely did not recall vaping that evening when I discussed the night’s events with my campaign team while confirming my enthusiasm for the musical.
She added that it is “clear now that was not inaccurate,” and that her campaign’s intentions were not to “mislead.”
“We know we will have to work to earn your trust back and it may not happen overnight, but we will do it,” Boebert’s apology read.
“The past few days have been difficult and humbling, and I’m truly sorry for the unwanted attention my Sunday evening in Denver has brought to the community,” Boebert said in a statement. “While none of my actions or words as a private citizen that night were intended to be malicious or meant to cause harm, the reality is they did and I regret that.”
“There’s no perfect blueprint for going through a public and difficult divorce, which over the past few months has made for a challenging personal time for me and my entire family,” she continued. “I’ve tried to handle it with strength and grace as best I can, but I simply fell short of my values on Sunday. That’s unacceptable and I’m sorry.”
The 36-year-old congresswoman concluded, “I’ve learned some humbling lessons these past few days but I vow moving forward, I will make you proud.”
Boebert announced that she was filing for divorce from her husband of 18 years, Jayson Boebert, in May. The Republican representative cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce.
